Great recipe! Easy to fix and everyone really enjoyed them, including the kids! I made them exactly as the recipe stated, but used less than one chipotle, since my son likes it a bit more mild. The third time I used some crumbled, cooked sausage instead of the chicken and it turned out just as good! The coleslaw blend was a nice touch and added some good and interesting texture. These are on my regular line up. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take the meat off the bone of the rotisserie chicken and tear into bite-size pieces.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. In a stockpot, place the chicken, chili powder, cabbage, chipotles, tomato sauce, scallions, salt and pepper and 2 cups cheese. Add chicken broth and heat slowly until it all melts.
  4. When ready to assemble, place a small amount of cheese in the center of a tortilla and top with the desired amount of filling. Fold the sides of the tortilla over the filling and close by overlapping the other two sides. Place seam-side down on a greased baking sheet and repeat until you have used all of the filling. Brush the tops of the chimichangas with oil and bake until deep golden brown, about 15-17 minutes.
  5. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
